For many of us, mathematics is a subject to be feared-a daunting world of schoolroom numbers and equations. Yet we often wish in everyday life that we could remember all those handy mathematical tools and tips that were once explained to us-Maths Squared provides the bite-sized solution. Everybody knows and understands Pythagoras' theorem and pi, but Maths Squared introduces you to the world of Einstein's relativity theory, Euclidean geometry, and the butterfly effect. Maths Squared is an ideal reintroduction to the mysterious and magical world of numbers. Across 10 chapters and 100 topics, it takes you on a whistlestop tour from the essentials of numbers and arithmetic to the strange outer limits where mathematics and philosophy merge. Along the way, it looks at many of the key problems that have led to mathematical breakthroughs, and some of those which remain unsolved. Using accessible yet authoritative text complimented by new color illustrations, infographics and photographs, Maths Squared is the ideal primer or refresher for those who want to learn more about the fascinating language of numbers and equations that describes the Universe.

The year's finest mathematics writing from around the world This annual anthology brings together the year’s finest mathematics writing from around the world. Featuring promising new voices alongside some of the foremost names in the field, The Best Writing on Mathematics 2017 makes available to a wide audience many articles not easily found anywhere else—and you don’t need to be a mathematician to enjoy them. These writings offer surprising insights into the nature, meaning, and practice of mathematics today. They delve into the history, philosophy, teaching, and everyday occurrences of math, and take readers behind the scenes of today’s hottest mathematical debates. Here Evelyn Lamb describes the excitement of searching for incomprehensibly large prime numbers, Jeremy Gray speculates about who would have won math’s highest prize—the Fields Medal—in the nineteenth century, and Philip Davis looks at mathematical results and artifacts from a business and marketing viewpoint. In other essays, Noson Yanofsky explores the inherent limits of knowledge in mathematical thinking, Jo Boaler and Lang Chen reveal why finger-counting enhances children’s receptivity to mathematical ideas, and Carlo Séquin and Raymond Shiau attempt to discover how the Renaissance painter Fra Luca Pacioli managed to convincingly depict his famous rhombicuboctahedron, a twenty-six-sided Archimedean solid. And there’s much, much more. In addition to presenting the year’s most memorable writings on mathematics, this must-have anthology includes a bibliography of other notable writings and an introduction by the editor, Mircea Pitici. This book belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in where math has taken us—and where it is headed.
